As I write this, it’s been raining for about four hours – what’s being called “#stormTO” and “#floodTO” on Twitter. I’ve been home inside, but power outages are scattered across the city, some of my friends’ apartments have been flooded, and reports are saying that there’s even more rain to come (we’re at 90mm, a far cry from the 1mm expected rainfall I saw when I checked the forecast this morning).
Natural disasters often have a way of bringing strangers together, but I guess there will always be people who don’t seize the moment.
I don’t know about you, but I think sharing an umbrella with someone would make a pretty sweet “meetcute.” But alas…
Take it easy out there, Toronto. Hope you’re safe, dry, and maybe even snuggled up to a loved one.
